The objective of the present study was to analyse the construction and effectiveness of the offensive sequences of shots by members of the 2016 Paralympic gold medal men’s wheelchair basketball team. The analysis included the shot situation and of the actions leading up to the shot (reception prior to the shot, last pass, reception prior to the last pass, penultimate pass, and previous reception to the penultimate pass), based on the classification level of the player who performs the technical-tactical action. The registration and coding of the data was performed on the software programme LINCE. The reliability of the data was examined by inter-observer agreement through Cohen's Kappa coefficient. The results allow to deepen the specificity of the game of this sport, having characterized the construction of effective and ineffective (shot from the right lateral or the centre; from the offensive outside or from the offensive intermediate zone; shot made by players with the greatest functional limitations; players with greater functional difficulties perform the last reception, the last pass, and the reception prior to the last pass) sequences.
